After a night of blissful freedom, Cinderella reluctantly returns to a life of mundane servitude. Only yesterday, she was the star of the royal ball—dancing with and captivating the prince. The toll of the clock striking 12 marked the end of that fleeting night and made liberation an impossible dream. But unbeknownst to her, she is being sought after by the kingdom. Will this bring about her salvation, or the exact opposite?

In this twisted take on the classic folk tale, Cinderella quickly learns that everything has a cost, and anything that sounds too good to be true almost certainly is.

Story 9: - 12 O'clock Bell Ring is an extremely extraordinary story. Lolita-gothic art isn't usually my daily read, I doubt I've read much gothic anyway (Count them on fingers). But what attracted me to this story is the amazing twists in this one-shot. It's a different version of Cinderella, and I might like this one just as much. Except that, this one isn't a role model for kids looking for endless happy ending tales. The characters are TOTALLY different and they are the complete opposite, which makes this story even more interesting.

A dream never comes for free..This is a great story coming as a little change to the all so popular Cinderella..With some changed characters with a teeny cinderella that acts like a normal human and a prince that doesn't talk all so royalish ..
The story has a surprise that will make you jump out of your pants..I never though a one shot would be that great..
It's so recommended for anyone who wants a good plot with some unexpected events :D

It literally is just Cinderella with minor changes. The "comedy" is not very funny, other than the "evil?"ness and the initial dialogue of Cind at ball, also the horses a bit funny. Labeled as both comedy and horror, I was a bit disappointed that there was not a ton of horror (I like horror). There should have at least been the bare minimum of using the OG dark Cinderella foot chop off bird peck out eyes story (one could excuse that as the mangaka not knowing the original storyline, but if I was writing a twist on a story, I would look up the origins ...
